Would I be able to back up my desktop PC on a Time Capsule that I recently bought? My TC is connected to my Desktop and a printer, and I am backing up my MacBook Pro using the wireless network. I really like the device but just wondering if I could use it for backing up my desktop as well.

MacBook Pro 15 inches, Mac OS X (10.5.4), iPhone 3G

    Yes, but it either needs to be done manually or with third-party backup software. Time Machine only runs in Mac OS X.

    Thanks for the reply. If I do not how to do this manually, I guess I need to buy third party softwares to back up Desktop PC on the Time Capsule. What is the name of such a software? Where do I search for one? Lastly, do I run such a software on my PC? Thanks.

    Drag the files you want to back up to the Time Capsule's hard drive.

    What is the name of such a software? Where do I search for one?

    do I run such a software on my PC?
